STRING protein interaction network
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
PET494Mitochondrial translational activator specific for the COX3 mRNA; acts together with Pet54p and Pet122p; located in the mitochondrial inner membrane (489 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Subunit III of cytochrome c oxidase (Complex IV); Complex IV is the terminal member of the mitochondrial inner membrane electron transport chain; one of three mitochondrially-encoded subunits
Protein PET54; Mitochondrial inner membrane protein; binds to the 5' UTR of the COX3 mRNA to activate its translation together with Pet122p and Pet494p; also binds to the COX1 Group I intron AI5 beta to facilitate exon ligation during splicing
Protein PET111, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial translational activator specific for the COX2 mRNA; located in the mitochondrial inner membrane
Protein PET122, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial translational activator specific for the COX3 mRNA; acts together with Pet54p and Pet494p; located in the mitochondrial inner membrane
Pentatricopeptide repeat-containing protein PET309, mitochondrial; Specific translational activator for the COX1 mRNA; binds to the COX1 mRNA; also influences stability of intron-containing COX1 primary transcripts; localizes to the mitochondrial inner membrane; contains 12 pentatricopeptide repeats (PPRs)
Cytochrome b translational activator protein cbs2, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial translational activator of the COB mRNA; interacts with translating ribosomes, acts on the COB mRNA 5'-untranslated leader
Protein MSS51, mitochondrial; Specific translational activator for the mitochondrial COX1 mRNA; loosely associated with the matrix face of the mitochondrial inner membrane; localizes to vacuole membrane in response to H2O2; influences both COX1 mRNA translation and Cox1p assembly into cytochrome c oxidase; binds to heme B, which may be a mechanism for sensing oxygen levels in order to regulate cytochrome c oxidase biogenesis
Mitochondrial transcription factor 2; Mitochondrial protein that interacts with mitochondrial RNA polymerase; interacts with an N-terminal region of mitochondrial RNA polymerase (Rpo41p) and couples RNA processing and translation to transcription
mRNA-binding protein PUF3; Protein of the mitochondrial outer surface; links the Arp2/3 complex with the mitochore during anterograde mitochondrial movement; also binds to and promotes degradation of mRNAs for select nuclear-encoded mitochondrial proteins
37S ribosomal protein RSM28, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial ribosomal protein of the small subunit; genetic interactions suggest a possible role in promoting translation initiation
